He says:

"if he has a license in the US, he'll be ok. If you want to rent, you can only ride it in certain states according to rental agreement.

There's a treaty between US and India that their drivers licenses and ours are reciprocal. "

Reliability

The new Electra bike has now a 5 speed conventional gearbox, and a new engine designed by AVL in Austria. Sounds like the engine is now very good, especially with the Highway kit that make cruising on the highway possible. I'd like to hear from Royal Enfield owners, so they can tell if it's a load of crap, or if the reliability of the new bike is really on par with more modern motorcycles. Anything about that new engine? Sorry to dig in, but I love brit bikes and wish to learn more about them.

yup, it's the one, but in Trial trim, which I tink is gorgeous. The rear section of the bullet s a bit weird, especially the seat. And the bars on the bullet are a little low. The trial cleans up all that, plus ads a faid bit of off road abilities (for trail riding, not MX).

My license works in India

Thanks for the info. I will take along some gear and have an adventure.

I suspect the traffic laws in India are similar to those I learned driving in Lebanon, where there are really only two rules:

1. You can go if there's room.

2. There's always room.
